There is much that is great and wonderful and exceptional about New Orleans, but nothing is more impressive than the fact that the richest elements of this city's culture are participatory. - Lolis Eric Elie

In 1879, the newspaper columnist Lafcadio Hearn took note of New Orleans' chronic states of decay, insolvency, lawlessness and prurience, yet still proclaimed: "It is better to live here in sackcloth and ashes than to own the whole state of Ohio."

"Look at all the second-liners. Everybody's got their own little take,
their own little move, their own way of swiveling that ankle, just the
way everybody has their own way of cooking red beans. We're very
lucky. It's a precious and irreplaceable and rare experience to be
part of a community where the sense of belonging comes from really
being yourself." Tom Piazza, author of "City of Refuge"

"The second line is so much more than a religion or an obsession or a cult even. Simply put, it's soul medicine. Whatever harsh realities life deals you through the week, a good ole four-hour long second line parade will burn that poison right on out of you." Big Red Cotton

“You're gonna find heaven right here on earth...
Way down yonder in New Orleans.”
— Louis Armstrong
